Regulations & Plagiarism Warning

  • We are very interested in your own thoughts and writing in response to the Call for Papers.  This is for your benefit – to show your research skill to qualify for the Lex-Warrier Publication.
  • Lex-Warrier will check all submissions for plagiarism, excessive referencing which are identical or in which evidence of copying is apparent.  Failing to acknowledge and cite other people’s work or ideas, close paraphrasing, using passages verbatim without referencing, extreme referencing (without any original work done by the author), and copying other students’ work is considered academic dishonesty by Lex-Warrier.  Lex-Warrier will record the incident, and the reasons for rejecting the submission in the personal file of the concerned author for future reference.
  • Accordingly, all submissions should be original.
  • All submissions which have been reported with apparent plagiarism/copying will be returned without being marked, resulting in failure to publish it with Lex-Warrier.
  • Lex-Warrier recommends that authors shall use appropriate citation styles, for example:

and include a bibliography at the end of the final exam containing the necessary information for the grader to identify the sources cited.

The 2010 Harvard Referencing Guide defines plagiarism in the following manner:

Plagiarism is passing off the work of others as your own. This constitutes academic theft and is a serious matter which is penalised in assignment marking.  The following extract is from the Anglia Ruskin University Academic Regulations [2010]1.

Plagiarism and collusion are common forms of assessment offence. They are defined as follows:

Plagiarism is the submission of an item of assessment containing elements of work produced by another person(s) in such a way that it could be assumed to be the student’s own work.

Examples of plagiarism are:

  • the verbatim copying of another person’s work without acknowledgement
  • the close paraphrasing of another person’s work by simply changing a few words or altering the order of presentation without acknowledgement
  • the unacknowledged quotation of phrases from another person’s work and/or the presentation of another person’s idea(s) as one’s own.

Copying or close paraphrasing with occasional acknowledgement of the source may also be deemed to be plagiarism if the absence of quotation marks implies that the phraseology is the student’s own.

Plagiarized work may belong to another student or be from a published source such as a book, report, journal or material available on the internet.
